Bitcoin to Hit $200k in 2022
As Bitcoin reclaims its earlier highs, Tom Lee, a managing partner at Fundstrat Global Advisors, has predicted that Bitcoin could be valued at as much as $200,000 in 2022, despite a rather disappointing end to 2021.
Popular crypto analyst Nicholas Merten, in plotting a potential price path for Bitcoin, reached the same conclusion as Tom Lee, speculating that Bitcoin could quadruple in price at some point in 2022, thus leading to a $200k valuation.
Prior to Bitcoin’s all-time high of $68.8k on November 10th, Tom Lee had predicted that the approval of the ProShares Bitcoin ETF would drive the price of BTC to new highs. While this did indeed come to pass, the bulls could not sustain the upwards momentum, leaving Bitcoin to peak significantly below his forecasted $100k valuation.
On the Flipside
- According to Steve Hanke, a professor of applied economics at Johns Hopkins University, while we know the price of Bitcoin, its value is probably zero.
